Tippecanoe County farmers new vendors at Purdue games
Tippecanoe County farmers Neil and Tashney Moseley, owners of Pleasant Acre Farms, are expanding their offerings to Purdue University football games.
During all home games, the Moseleys will sell a variety of goods from a concession stand in Ross-Ade Stadium. Fans can also enjoy fresh items from their grill outside of Ross-Ade Stadium, on the northeast side.
“We are excited to see some of our local farmers partnering with Levy Catering and Purdue Athletics to bring the Farm-to-Fork concept to Ross-Ade Stadium,” said Jay Akridge, Purdue's Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture. “Boilermaker fans can enjoy some great tasting Indiana products, and learn a bit more about this growing part of Indiana agriculture.”
Pleasant Acre Farms’ menu includes a brat burger on a pretzel bun with sauerkraut and thousand island dressing; corn on the cob; a bowl of roasted red potatoes with cheese, bacon, sour cream and chives; fresh roasted salsa and chips; slices of watermelon and kettle corn. The concession stand is located outside of Section 111, in stand C-15.
